Those are all valuable and essential skills that's needed for all children to know. School would not be a bad thing if they taught that. Oh well, they won't and it's a crying shame. If I ever had kids, they'd get homeschooled or unschooled.

These are the things I had to learn for my self after graduation. *sigh* not even in religion class did we learn how to empathize with people. It was just cryptic dissections of Bible passages and weird band-aid solutions to personal conflicts.

Hey great topic! I really like the anti-competition one. I would have never thought of that. Aside from not learning these in school, I didn't learn ANYTHING in school (high school that is). High school is 4 years of your life wasted. I had to completely start from the bottom when I got into college. I'll definitely keep these in mind when I hopefully have kids in something like 20 years ha.
